F-86 Sabre - Korean War

KOREA—The F-86 Sabre, the United States Air Force’s first swept-wing jet fighter, made its initial flight Oct. 1, 1947. On September 15, 1948, an F-86A set a then-world speed record of 670.9 mph. As a day fighter, the airplane saw service in Korea in three successive series (F-86A, E, and F) where it engaged the Russian-built MiG-15. By the end of hostilities, it had shot down 792 MiGs at a loss of only 76 Sabres, a victory ratio of 10 to 1. (U.S. Air Force file photo)
